The Facts behind the SCUM Manifesto Conference..
Agent Orange Special Report no 2.
With the exposure of the RADFEM Hub information, their discussions about gendercide (the killing of all men) and the SCUM Manifesto, one does wonder who those guest speakers were , who were involved in the three day SCUM Manifesto conference..
Agent Orange, our Net Investigator appear to have hit on the identities of the speakers involved and also the organisers of the conference as well. Those who attended to discuss the annihilation of men and boys are listed below..
As you can see the object of that conference is listed as above and also in the poster. One would have to question also as to who financed this conference and where was it held.
Perth SCUM Conference and it's connection to Australian Academia
Between September 23-25th, 2011, two members of the radical feminist hub and radfem forum, Danielle Elina Pynnonen (Allecto) and her partner, Big Brother UK 5 contestant Kat "Kitten Pinder (Amazon Mancrusher) organized and hosted a three day feminist conference in Perth Australia that they called the 'SCUM Conference'. They billed it as:
"THRILL SEEKING FEMALES UNITE! Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore, this THREE DAY RADICAL FEMINIST CONFERENCE is for civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females who want to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex. Workshops, guest presenters and social activities, plus a space to celebrate and re-member the life and work of Valerie Solanas and other radical feminists."
As you've seen in pervious articles, the people that frequent the Radfemhub and forum have often contemplated and discussed gendercide, male genital mutilation and advocating the abortion of male fetuses, among many other very disturbing activities. Valerie Solanas, the woman who this group has almost worship like admiration for, was the author of the SCUM Manifesto, never made it a secret about her feelings towards men. She wrote:
"Life in this society being, at best, an utter bore and no aspect of society being at all relevant to women, there remains to civic-minded, responsible, thrill-seeking females only to overthrow the government, eliminate the money system, institute complete automation and destroy the male sex."
In another passage she writes:
"Retaining the male has not even the dubious purpose of reproduction. The male is a biological accident: the y(male) chromosome is an incomplete x(female) chromosome, that is, has an incomplete set of chromosomes. In other words, the male is an incomplete female, a walking abortion, aborted at the gene stage. To be male is to be deficient, emotionally limited; maleness is a deficiency disease and males are emotional cripples."
Her writing seems to be in lock step with the very disturbing writings we have witnessed recently on the Radfem Hub and forum. And many would dismiss these people as wack-jobs, or insane or even the disturbed rantings of a few no-name sadistic people. Of course this isn't the case, as many of these women as we have seen are in positions of responsibility in the real world. But what about the guest speakers for the conference, the one's who also celebrated the life and work of Valerie Solanas? The sad, yet ugly truth is, that not only are these lecturers well known professors, authors and activists, but they also run in the same online circles with the very same women that advocate a desire for violence and death towards men.
While many of those who spoke have been smart enough to not talk about such ugly things as we have seen here online, (at least nothing that can be traced back to them) they are friends with these same groups of women on Facebook, guest post articles on the Radfem Hub and even comment on some of these women's individual blogs. Julie Anne LeComte on Canberra, Australia, the owner and administrator of the forum where most of the worst hate is espoused, goes by the online name Rain Lewis/Rainsinger/Raindancer.
A quick look at her Facebook page, as well as online forum discussions, that she, as well as Danielle Pynnonen(Allecto) and Kat Pinder(Amazon Mancrusher) personally know many of these professors, authors and activists. Just look at the speakers and some of the attendees of the 2008 Brisbane Feminist Conference. So just who were these speakers at the 2011 Perth SCUM conference that would openly associate with people that express a desire for gendercide?

And some of the other speakers?
Christine is a well know writer, speaker and activist in Australia who works with the Victorian Women’s Liberation and Lesbian Feminist Archives Inc.
Ryl is a PhD Candidate at James Cook University in Townsville Australia
Samantha is the National Coordinator for the feminist organization Stop Porn Culture.
And of course:
Julie Anne LeComte (aka Rain Lewis/Rainsinger/Rainsong)
Julie Anne LeComte, the owner and operator of the Radfem forums also is the Communications Coordinator for the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce. She is also recognized as a nationwide leader for Australian women's rights activism. In 2006, Dr. Browyn Winter, Associate Professor at the University of Sydney wrote a piece on White Ribbon Day for the Australian Website On Line Opinion. At the end of the piece, Dr. Winter, who is Facebook friends with Danielle Pynnonen (Allecto) as well as LeComte, listed out what she felt were the most prominent feminist and women's organization names in Australia. Julie Anna LeComte was one such name. More importantly than that though is the question, are some of the other names listed connected to the group of radical feminists who frequently discuss how to reduce the male population through gendercide?
Well, let's just say that the rabbit hole of radical feminists in positions of public trust does not just stop with just these women. More on that later, but I'll leave you all with a question; When the Australian government wants input on new legislation concerning sexual assault, domestic violence or special assistance for women only, who do you think they turn to for expert opinions?
Just as a post-script, which we will expand on further in a later article, several of these woman that are members of the Radfem Hub are frequent commenters on many of the "mainstream" online feminist blogs and sites. Some of the mainstream feminists are well aware of these people, and indeed even Hugo Schwyzer has written two articles on one of the Radfem Hub admins, a person known as FCM (Factcheckme) of the blog Femonade, saying FCM makes "some very important points that deserve responses." We won't publish FCM's identity just yet (hello Mindy), but more to come on that later.
